One West Side: Meet Our Grantees
A Better Chicago and the Chicago Blackhawks Foundation are investing $2 million over the next three years in community-based, homegrown leaders and programs changing the outcomes for Black and Latinx youth from low-income backgrounds on the West Side. Members of this newly founded portfolio will receive a combination of financial capital and capacity-building support to fuel their efforts and amplify their impact.
Join us Monday, September 28 as we kick off the One West Side initiative with a panel discussion including leaders from our first slate of grantees, moderated by Chicago Blackhawks Community Liaison and former player Jamal Mayers.
